    Oh, I am definitely not selling her. Like I said, it was just to show my mother that there isn't much of a market for horses like her right now.

    I plan to keep Sun as long as I can.

    Even in the UK where the horse market is probably better that in the US you would be looking at 500 MAXIMUM, probably less.

    I paid a fortune for my coloured youngster but he is a warmblood and is going to be my HOYS horse! A young TB who isnt broken, well there are hundreds of them flooding the market and there are hundreds more that have been broken in.,

    Hey Sunny, what a cutie she is! OK, I have a slightly different perspective...

    I agree with everyone that she doesn't hold much value right now. However, in a couple of years and with some good training under her belt (girth?) she will be worth MORE than the market average as she is a nice TB that has NOT seen the racetrack.

    Just a thought.

    Sunny is a very cheap horse. We have free board, so she costs $30-55 a month depending on farrier visits.
    One thing to keep in mind - she might be under $50 a month for normal upkeep. One incident though and you can have a vet bill at ten times that.

    Horses are a walking vet bill.

    So true!!!!

    My vet bill so far this year (and god we havent even made it to march yet) is getting on for 600 thanks to prides 4 days of colic and harveys hoof abcess.

    Reeco will have to have his teeth done when he gets back and vaccines are due the end of march (in the UK we are not allowed to administer vaccines ourselves, they must be administered by a vet!)

    Take your mother to an auction and let her see how badly the horses are going for. That should convence her. You can also do a search on one of the horse web pages for sale horses semaler to yours and see what comes up.

    I am more than aware of potential injuries and vet bills. Trust me.

    By calling her a cheap horse I was referring to her day-to-day expenses.

    Perhaps you could show your mother the prices on similar horses in your area. When she sees how much you would get, maybe she'll change her mind!

    Based on the prices in Alberta, you could get $1000+ for her in my area. ( in just searching unbroken 3yr old TB) I found a few up to $5000.

    Thanks for all of the responses, guys. Especially to those who did research just on my account.

    Much appreciated.
